    NOTE Demo.xpg file

    Demo.xpg file is required to create the Demo preset group which contains the test setup

    data used by the class exercises. And it is stored in the \data folder onAgilent B1500 Series

    Manual CD.

    The Demo preset group should be created before starting the class exercise. To create the

    preset group, launch EasyEXPERT and import the file by using the Preset Group Import

    dialog box opened by clicking My Favorite Setup > Preset Group > Import Preset Group.

    The test setup data are only examples for the class exercises.

    Before importing the Demo.xpg file, import the .xtd files stored in the same folder.

    NOTE .xtd files

    The \data folder stores some .xtd files. They are the application test definitions used by

    some class exercises. To use the definition file, import the file by using the Test Definition

    Import dialog box opened by clicking Library > Import Test Definition. The test definition

    data are only examples for the class exercises.

    NOTE .xtr files

    The \data folder also stores some .xtr files. They are the sample test results created by

    executing the test setup which has the same name as the result data. To display these

    sample test results, import the files by using the Test Result Import dialog box opened by

    clicking Results > Transport Data > Import.

    NOTE About sample data

    The test setup data described in this manual are only examples. If these example data

    damage your devices, Agilent isNOT LIABLEfor the damage.

    IMPORTANT:

    The MOS FET is highly sensitive to electrostatic damage. Touching the bare leads can definitely

    destroy the device. The device comes with a special shorting wire attached. Bend the leads the way

    you want, insert the device in the socket, and then remove the shorting wire. The wire has a tab. Justgrab the tab and pull straight out. The wire will spiral out as you pull.

    Once the shorting wire is removed, you must use a wrist strap when handling the device.

    This slide explains the effect of the Interlacing parameter. The NOS parameter sets the number of

    steps in a sweep operation. And the Interlacing parameter sets the number of sweep operations

    performed in a single measurement.

    This is the example of NOS=3 and Interlacing=5. At first, the sweep measurement is performed for

    the Start, Center, and Stop values. After that, the sweep measurement is repeated four times to

    narrow the sweep step. This results the same sweep steps as the sweep output of NOS=11 and

    Interlacing=1 although the timing is not same for some steps. By using the Interlacing, you can see

    the rough characteristics in the early stages. This is effective for the measurement such as the total

    pulsed sweep time is so long.

    For NOS=N and Interlacing=M, the sweep is repeated M times so that the final sweep step is equal to

    Step/M. Total number of steps will be N+(N-1)*(M-1).

    The Interlacing is the function only for the Tracer Test environment. This function is not available

    for the other test environment. Also this function is not covered by the FLEX command set.

    To Change Graph Properties

    The Graph Properties dialog box is used to set the following setting of the selected Data Display

    window. This dialog box is opened by clicking the Properties... button in the X-Y Graph Plot area or

    by selecting the Edit > Graph Properties... menu of the Data Display window.

    The Grid ON check box in the Effective Area is used to display the grid in the X-Y Graph.

    The Graph Color area is used to set the color map for the Data Display window. You can change the

    color of the background, text, graph grid, and line/cursor. The color palette is opened by clicking thepattern of the item.

    The Graph Trace Color area is used to set visibility, color, and thickness of the data traces Y1 to Y8

    plotted on the graph.

    The Log Scale area is used to set the maximum number of decades to show the minor ticks for the

    log axis. If the number of graph decades is less than or equal to the entered value, the minor ticks are

    displayed. If it is greater than the entered value, the minor ticks are not displayed.

    The Text Size area is used to set the font size for the graph. The available settings are Largest, Large,

    Medium, Small, Smallest, and Fixed. For settings other than Fixed, the appropriate size is

    automatically selected. For Fixed, a font size entry field is provided, and the specified font size is

    always applied.

    X/Y Axis Title: Font size for the axis title

    Scale: Font size for the X and Y coordinate values

    Legend: Font size for the graph legend

    The X-Y Graph area sets the X and Y1 to Y8 axes of the X-Y Graph Plot area.

    Name: Specifies the parameter for the axis

    Sharing: Specifies the group for sharing the Y axis scale. Select from Group 1, Group 2, Group 3,

    Group 4, or None (no grouping). The Scale, Min, and Max values are shared by the Y axes in thesame group. The scale set by Run Time Auto Scale, Auto Scale, Zoom in, and/or Zoom out are also

    shared. If another layer on the Data Display window contains an X-Y trace which has the same name

    for both its grouped Y parameter and its X parameter, the scaling will also be shared by this X-Y

    trace.

    Scale: Scale of the axis, Linear or Log
